I've been watching YouTube videos of water marbling for a while and wanted all those crazy swirls, petals and waves on my nails, too. Below are pictures of my first two attempts. I think there has been visible improvement! I keep getting air bubbles but the good news is that they are fewer than the ones I got in my first attempt. Also, I shouldn't have burst the air bubbles.
I used O.P.I. Jade is the New Black as the base colour, and O.P.I. Purple With A Purpose and O.P.I. Alpine Snow for the watermarbling. I was brave enough to wear this mani on my birthday.
Here are some pointers for reasonably successful watermarbling:
|Second attempt - see where I burst the air bubbles|
|First attempt. Still yuck.|
|O.P.I. Purple With A Purpose and Jade Is The New Black - change the water after every two nails; otherwise this happens.|
